If you’re tired of firing up Photoshop for lightweight image editing tasks, this little tool is good news for you. Called Remove.bg, it can clear out the background of an image in seconds, no lassoing or any other editing hassle required. Because it uses AI trained on images of people, Remove.bg only works on photos of humans for now, immediately separating subject from background and leaving your image clean and ready for whatever you plan to do with it.
Curator’s note: I just tried this with an image of a researcher in a lab with lots of colorful objects behind him. It’s perfect. And it took about 4 seconds. Game changer.
